Reptile Round Up
The community is invited to view Arkansas reptiles and modern day dinosaurs at the Donald W. Reynolds Library Serving Baxter County on Saturday, February 24, 10am-12pm. Ken Foreman with Fred Berry Conservation Education Center will be bringing five live reptiles native to Arkansas and sharing information about each. Ken also has a virtual reality exhibit that answers the question, “What happened to dinosaurs in Arkansas?”
Everyone that attends the program on Saturday is welcome to a pocket guide on snakes native to Arkansas.
This program is part of a program series designed to correlate with the Dinosaurs: Fossils Exposed exhibit currently on display at the Library. Exhibit visitors can view and even touch five full dinosaur skeletal molds including a Triceratops, and Velociraptor. There are additional molds of skulls, arms, legs, eggs, footprints and a 6-foot-1 Apatosaurus femur. Visitors will also enjoy a dig box where they can use paleontology tools to unearth dinosaur bones.
Other programs in the series include:
